BUDGET DEAL isn’t a deal

Can someone tell me WHAT THE WHITE HOUSE WON on the budget deal?

Mike Pence “couldn’t BE more pleased.”

Because Planned Parenthood is still financed?

Because Sanctuary Cities are keeping funding?

Increases in Domestic Spending?

The Wall gets no funding?

I could go on.   Which would make YOU so “pleased” if YOU were Vice President and won on a Republican ticket?

Rep. Jim Jordan, a member of the hardline conservative House Freedom Caucus. “I wished we would have pushed harder on the issues I just talked about.”   And you didn’t WHY?

Yes, some more spending on the border patrols, and defense budget apparently went up.

How’s middle America going to take the much more important losses?  I think Trump’s doing his damndest to lose seats in 2018.

    Trump should veto this bill, but it is mainly the congress who is not working for America. I think the bill gives us more ICE agents but no where near enough as I read that each current agent has 10,000 illegals assigned to them. Then he got half of the military $ he was looking for.

    And the dems got everything they wanted. Up-check shumner said he couldn’t be happier.

    Pathetic. The repubs and conservatives are beside themselves with anger. Clown Show Continues in Congress.

    Kid, it’s AWFUL. if the Repubs and Conservatives were beside themselves with anger, why didn’t they work harder, as Jim Jordan suggested (quoted in my post?)

    Yes, Pelosi’s thrilled, too……….Is this alll so Trump can bomb N. Korea?: “OH, please, oh PLEASE, let me bomb the jerk…I’ll let you have the domestic front?”

    the beast is on TV now telling Trump how he should handle N Korea, by the way…… “US alone can’t put the pressure on N Korea” uh…Trump’s getting China and Japan and S Korea involved, Beasty, so what’s your point?

  3. geeez2014 says:

    Oh, BIG applause when she says “Negotiations are important, not just based on early morning tweets saying “Hey, can’t we just get along? maybe we’ll like each other!”…>BIG APPLAUSE

  4. Kid says:

    I’m referring to non-politician repubs and cons.

  5. geeez2014 says:

    Them, too……..they seem MORE upset, actually. And that’s why I said Trump seems to have set his goal on losing seats in 2018. The government types don’t seem too upset…just wish they’d WORKED HARDER, the shmucks.

  6. Mal says:

    Kid, he may have only gotten half the military $$$ he was looking for, but remember, he is a negotiator and probably anticipated this and doubled the requested amount in the beginning. Trump may be a novice politician but he’s a master in business and negotiating. He didn’t amass his fortune by being stupid or naïve. My money is still on Trump outfoxing them all. And all the static the left is making will only end up hurting them in the end. Folks are tired of all the bickering.

  7. geeez2014 says:

    Now Mulvaney’s on TV at a presser saying “TRUMP ACTUALLY CUT A TREMENDOUS DEAL FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.”

    He’s doing exactly what I was JUST about to post I wish they’d do; asking WHY DON’T THE REPUBLICANS EXPLAIN WHY THIS IS A GOOD BUDGET?? Not sure I trust him but at least he’s trying to explain.

    -THE largest funding for border security….in 10 years….ok
    -Miner’s health. WHAT? I believe that’s important, too, but compared to SANCTUARY CITIES $$?
    -$21 million in Defense Spending….for a lot less than Obama had to give. (As if Obama fought for defense spending! HAAAAAAAAAAA!)

    THINGS Dems did not get..
    -No Obama care bail-out money there….Dems are lying…this guy says.
    -No new money for Puerto Rico…all that money was already spent
    -no renewable energy subsidies
    -THEY WANTED A GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN TO MAKE TRUMP’S ADMIN LOOK LIKE THEY COULDN’T FUNCTION, this guy says.

    SO….sanctuary cities are in business, the wall waits, planned parenthood funding pisses off MILLIONS of Republicans, BUT we got miner’s health!

    “Dems don’t want you to know Trump won” WHAT??

    The Trump people live in a different world than we do, apparently.

    Now he’s showing pictures of walls at the Southern border and saying there are BIG dollars to build this stuff…..not A WALL, but updated fencing, levies, etc.

  8. Kid says:

    MAL, Good point, but it is more he didn’t get any of the other stuff. Immigraton issue is very disappointing. And the other things Z listed. How hard can it be to stop funding “Planned Abortions”. Someone wants to have one let them pay.

    Well, it ain’t clinton and we got one good Supreme so far.

  9. Kid says:

    They’re putting lipstick all over this pig.

  10. Kid says:

    They also doubled the number of H-2B visas also. Cheap labor for resorts.

  11. Imp says:

    Ummmm….. my understanding was that this budget is for 2017 because obummer never got it passed due to the Repubs holding it back? And in October his new budget for 2018 will come up for votes and it will be what we’re looking for?

  12. Bob says:

    I don’t see the bill as being that bad. After all, the funding is for the remainder of 2017. Let’s wait and see what happens in the fall. Until then, we have enough to worry about.

  13. geeez2014 says:

    Bob’s words, as usual, as wise: “Let’s wait and see what happens in the fall. Until then, we have enough to worry about.” That is FOR SURE.

    Imp, ya think our having capitulated a bit will put us in better stead in October? I like that thinking…thanks for the encouragement!

    KID! DOUBLED THOSE VISAS? Are you finally getting my frustration with Trump when you throw in “Cheap labor for resorts.?” naaa

    re ABORTION: We need SOME knuckle headed Republican to FINALLY put in clear English that we would LIKE people to stop killing babies, but we know that’s NEVER going to end and, if they want to do that, PAY FOR IT YOURSELF…or go to a rich-ish lib friend for help, they DO NOT COST THAT MUCH. And WE certainly are tired of paying for the murders.
    The typical Democrat reaction is “THEY WON’T LET ME BE IN CHARGE OF MY OWN BODY!”
    MY response is;
    “Sure you are….kill away! Live with your conscience and God be with you….but why DRAG PRO LIFE PEOPLE INTO IT?”

  14. Kid says:

    Z, If you want to feel a little better, here is a list of accomplishments thus far.
    I don’t mind the EO’s with this dysfunctional congress.

    http://tinyurl.com/k2f5e25

    IMP – You may have the point about it being obama’s spending bill. That gives me hope we can go more hard line for the next one.

  15. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, thanks….that list is fine but DEFEATING ISIS …? Ya, let’s put a check by THAT Exec Order, right?
    The Dow’s down in HOPE, not anything concrete………

    Still, it’s nice to see these things and I hope Imp IS right………….gives me hope, too.

    What’d you think of my idea for Planned Parenthood? I don’t see WHY most Americans wouldn’t say ‘yes’ to this. Time and TIME again Pro Lifers have PROVEN that PP is NOT doing some of the diagnostic work they get paid for..(not all PP places to mammograms, etc. but they SAY they DO).but the media QUIETS DOWN THE TRUTH.
    It all DISAPPEARS because of the media………ALL the good stuff goes away, drowned in liberal lies.

  16. Kid says:

    I agree with what you said about Abortion. Sure get one, but don’t ask me to pay for it.

  17. geeez2014 says:

    So now I'[m listening to the wonderful Cavuto, whose people are reporting a decent amount of Republicans are NOT going to vote for this budget……….
    If it helps Trump at ALL, you can count on them to screw him.

  18. geeez2014 says:

    The FOX gal is right…Trump sets VERY high expectations, with time lines, etc., and if he keeps that up and keeps missing the mark, he’s going to lose a lot of supporters.

  19. geeez2014 says:

    REALLY BRIGHT Republican gal talking to Cavuto..and very YOUNG. I hope there are MANY more like HER. She nailed why Hillary lost…totally right…”deplorables”
    \And then SEVEN YEARS for Reps to come up with health care bills and STILL nothing?
    She’s good….

    FOLKS! WE NEED VERY YOUNG AND BRIGHT CONSERVATIVES ON TELEVISION TALKING TO OTHER YOUNG AND HIP PEOPLE……EVERYWHERE……..I KNOW THEY DON’T GET HIRED, WE ALL HAVE HEARD THAT, BUT SOMEHOW IT CAN BE DONE.. can’t it??
    GAD!!

    HAVE YOU SEEN THIS? Colbert edited an interview to make Trump look as HORRID as he possibly can and you’d think it was real:

    As one of President Donald Trump’s most vocal critics, Stephen Colbert probably assumed an interview with the president about his first 100 days wouldn’t be possible. So he did the next best thing.

    The “Late Show” team pieced together footage from Trump’s sit-down with CBS’s “Face the Nation” earlier this week and inserted Colbert as the interviewer in a way that made Trump look distinctly unpresidential.

    “Now sir, you’ve been in office for 100 days,” Colbert said in the “exclusive interview.” “What do you think people are saying about you?”

    “People are saying, ‘Is he sane? I have no idea,'” Trump responded in the altered footage.

    The strained US-North Korea relationship has been a hot topic for the past few weeks, so Colbert sought to find out where Trump stood on a potential conflict.

    “Are you afraid you might start a nuclear war with North Korea?” the host asked.

    “I was all set to do it,” Trump responded in the edited footage. “As we were sitting here, I was going to have to delay you. I was going to do it as we’re sitting here.”

    Through the rejiggered footage, Colbert got Trump to say he wouldn’t touch NAFTA and Medicare — but what about “an unsuspecting woman’s behind”?

    “I will touch that,” Trump said in the clip.

    THIS IS DECENCY?

  20. Colbert engages in the same political satire that comedians have since the beginning of comedy for hire. Nothing new to see here.

    I agree that Trump speaking in absolutes, is going to cost him support. He doesn’t have to stoop to politics as usual, just be rational when he speaks. As for the CR, I think Bob is right……every CR to date has been a lukewarm compromise. When [IF] we ever get an actual budget passed…then we can make a decent determination.

  21. geeez2014 says:

    CI…of course it’s not the old political satire we’re all mature enough to understand has gone on for years.. Only recently have editing capabilities been used like this….they look real. There are people who won’t know the difference. BIG difference. BIG.

    Trump needs to stop speaking entirely…to only read what’s written for him….and stop tweeting. For at least a month. BLOW the media’s MINDS that he doesn’t take their bait. BLOW their minds. He needs to at least act dignified. Do his work, not care what people say about him…just GET IT DONE and STOP the constant thin skinned thing. It’s wearing even thinner.

  22. Imp says:

    Amazing ….. Bob and me said exactly the same thing. This current budget is a head fake until September or October because it was dropped by in his lap by the outgoing of Obama who didn’t get his budget passed. Instead of focusing on what he didn’t get….. I’m looking at all the national security objectives, school choice , defense, the military, border security in the wall, homeland security. I don’t think he’d ever get to defund the baby killers to our every lasting shame.

  23. geeez2014 says:

    So, Imp, as I asked above, do you think this capitulation now on a LOT of what Republicans were promised will put us in good stead in October?

  24. Imp says:

    Z….. I do. I believe that with this primarily settled we he can devote his and the congress time to the I health care and tax reform that are the real biggies to tackle.

  25. geeez2014 says:

    Did you all hear what Hillary said this morning? When asked if she supported the strikes on Syria, she said yes, she had supported them, but WONDERED IF ANY BACKROOM DEALS WERE DONE. BACKROOM DEALS? Is it so unusual to have deals done behind the scenes when we’re acting on geopolitical situations?

    In discussing the Syria strikes Amanpour asked Clinton, “Did the Syria Strike work?”

    “I think it’s too soon to really tell.” (Christiane: Did you support it?) “Yes, I did support it. I didn’t publicly support it because that wasn’t my role. But I did support. But I’m not convinced it really made much of a difference and I don’t know what kind of potentially backroom deals were made with the Russians.”

    So, she takes both sides…yes, I agree….but was there a deal? GAD. She is beneath CONTEMPT So, it’s not okay to publicly support if it isn’t her ROLE but it’s her ROLE now to insult the action, or at least throw shadow on it? #@($*&@#()*$&@#(*$&*(@#&$(*@&#$*(

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2334721/Obama-secret-deal-support-Hillary-Clintons-2016-run-exchange-Bills-support-election-campaign.html

    There’s a DEAL, Hillary…you okay with THAT?

  26. Kid says:

    IMP, yes, lets see what happens this fall with the next bill.

    Z, I’m begging you, can we call the beast ‘clinton’ now that we all know who we are talking about? 🙂

    And it isn’t going away, it’s going to try again in 2020. $1000 bucks. Any takers?

  27. John M. Berger says:

    I’m with :Bob, Imp & Mal for now. That said, I’ll be real disappointed if he doesn’t come through in the Fall.

  28. geeez2014 says:

    Kid…I can’t link to Yahoo because you won’t open a Yahoo link, and now I can’t use Hillary? I said “beast” up above, then finally thought “Why am I DOING THIS?” No, sadly, we won’t know who we’re talking about…she has a pretty famous husband and daughter. geeeeZ!!

    JMB….it would have been better had Mulvany’s information from his presser this morning been discussed a bit more favorably, because he did a pretty good job dissuading Dems from thinking they’ve done so well…which is what most Americans have heard all day “THE DEMOCRATS BEAT TRUMP!”.

  29. bocopro says:

    Can ennybody ‘splain to this simple ol’ country boy precisely what benefits the country gets from having the ACA, Planned Parenthood, and sanctuary cities?

    Most of the people covered by ACA who didn’t have insurance before it was enacted are those on MedicAid or catastrophic pre-existing conditions; Planned Parenthood doesn’t even do mammograms; and sanctuary cities are like breeding grounds for the Meso-American Mafia.

  30. geeez2014 says:

    HOORAH FOR TUCKER CARLSON!!!!! “Gee, it’s so hard to live here as an undocumented immigrant and it hurts us..” says his illegal guest. FINALLY, Tucker says what I was thinking “Well, did it ever occur to you that it hurts Americans to have illegals break our laws? Don’t American citizens have the right to say who comes here or not?”

    Carlson is SOOO GOOD.

  31. Kid says:

    Z, You cannot use the h word. 🙂 We know who we are talking about.

    Tucker…. This is what happens when you give a loser an inch – they take 19 miles and a bottle of rum and obama has given these * an inch a day for years. They’re marching In The Streets Demanding We Give Them What They Want !!!! Arrest and deport them on the spot !!!!!!!!!!! !! ! !!!!!

  32. geeez2014 says:

    Laura Ingraham seems to think this budget is a nightmare and we’re going to be in BIG S*** creek in October because the Dems are going to be emboldened.
    She says that Trump wanted to be unconventional but, instead, too much was handed to Republicans, so they handed it to the Dems.
    I think she’s right.
    Almost painful to hear the jerk Hannity stand up for Trump.
    Hannity can’t bring himself to slam Trump, so Laura says that if this is what the Republicans can do, we’re screwed.

    I’m turning the TV off to read. Or watch Everybody Loves Raymond.

  33. geeez2014 says:

    She’s right. Trump could have veto’d any of it…like Planned Parenthood. Done.

    SHIT.

  34. geeez2014 says:

    oh, MAN…now Laura’s suggesting Trump do what I’ve suggested he do…SPEAK TO THE NATION like REAGAN did..Trump WON on his agenda…
    Why did McConnell TELL the Dems we’d not shut the gov’t? STUPID STUPID STUPID.

  35. geeez2014 says:

    WOZIR, if HANNITY THE TRUMP LOVER can be angry and threaten to diss Trump, we are in TROUBLE….and so is TRUMP. HOLY COW

  36. Kid says:

    Z, Naw, they just giving the Rino’s something to be afraid of in the next elections. As they should be. A little advance notice. We’ll see. Gorsuch and one or two more will neuter the libtards for DECADES. Considering the alternative, I’m good tiht that. I’d have been ecstatic to have 1 or 2 SC’s on Nov 7. I’d have taken it hands down. Trump has already gotten more done than that.

  37. geeez2014 says:

    Gad, Trump’s still saying “This bill is a win for the American Pee-Pow”

  38. If I’m correct, PP and the Wall and the Military get corrected in reconciliation.
    If I’m wrong, they don’t.
    Reconciliation takes 51%. No Dems need apply.

  39. bunkerville says:

    My hunch is they will go nuclear option on ALL bills come this fall. Trump will not be able to pass anything otherwise. Thus only needing a 51 votes in the Senate. Bad PR forTrump today. He is not a happy man.
